‘When storm events occurred, the sediment was remobilized’
After water began seeping from the Gold King Mine in San Juan County, hay bales were installed as filer for sediment in North Fork as seen in this photograph from August 2015. Wastewater from the mine is now being treated in a series of retention ponds. The head of the New Mexico Environment Department blasted the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday during a legislative committee meeting in the New Mexico Legislature, saying federal officials are downplaying the long-term effects of the Gold King Mine spill.
